Liverpool FC Fires Manager Kenny Dalglish

Jake WareCorrespondent IIIMay 16, 2012

After barely 18 months in charge, Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has been sacked as manager of Liverpool football club, according to the club.

The news comes after Dalglish led Liverpool to a disappointing eighth-place finish in the Premier League this year, with only a League Cup triumph to show for the 2011-12 season.

Dalglish was named caretaker manager on January 8, 2011 after the firing of new England boss Roy Hodgson. In his second spell at Anfield (he had previously served as manager in the late-1980s), Dalglish's club won 35 of 74 games at a win rate of 47.3 percent.

With the summer transfer window beckoning and next season set to be a defining one for the Reds, owner John W. Henry and his club will immediately turn their attention to finding a new manager for the team.
